I'm clueless as to whether it is related or not, but I've been enjoying
a similarly bad slowdown on Win32 for about the last four weeks. I
wouldn't say that it renders Cygwin totally useless, but it certainly
does so for certain tasks which spawn a lot of processes, which is where
i think the problem lies.

Slowdown after update on Win32 (XP Home)

But it might be a different one than what you are dealing with.

Turning on "-x" on the shell clearly shows that the slowdown is due to
process creation. Completion is out of the way, as I uninstalled it.
Security software is something I don't have.

$ time bash -i -c echo

real    0m8.025s
user    0m1.404s
sys     0m0.794s

$ time bash -i -c echo

real    0m7.910s
user    0m1.467s
sys     0m0.779s

$ time bash -i -c echo

real    0m6.560s
user    0m1.169s
sys     0m0.734s
